Death of the HOTS. JAMES WHITE.

[PBE PRESS ASSOCIATION.] Sydney, July 13. The Hon. . Jas. White, the wellknown sportsman, and •' Squire of Kirkham," died this afternoon from heart disease. He had been suffering for some considerable time. Mr White's death will be regretted by all who have the interests of racing at heart, for he was one of the itriost generous supporters of the turf m the colonies, and he owned at one time and another some of the best racehorses that ever faced the starter. Such horses as Nordehfelt, Abercorn, Trident, Chester, Martini-Henry, and many others have bornethe well-known blue and white jacket to victory m many classic races, and the famous Kirkham stud has done much to improve the quality of racehorses m A us* 1 tralia. Mr White 1 for''some years headed the list of winning owners m Australia arid generally carried off the lion's share of the prize money of the big meetings of the A. J.C. and V.R^C. In the course of his racing career Mr White won the Melbourne Cup twice, the Victorian Derby six times, the Australian Cup fotir times, the A.J.C. Derby five times, the Champion Stakes three times, the Maribyrnong Plate four times, the St Leger .Stakes five times, the A.J.C.' Chimpagrie Stakes four times, and the A. J.C, St Leger four times, besides many others. Hejastyear came into greater prominence by sending Home two colts, bred to English time, to run m the Derby and other classic races. Kirkham and Narellan have not, so far, fulfilled the expectations formed of them, but the enterprise of their owner m sending them so great a distance was fully appreciated by English sportsmen. — ; "Press." .'
